There are a few requirements companies must meet to be eligible for our program. You are eligible to participate if you:

  • Are a manufacturing operation
  • Have at least 15 full- or part-time permanent employees working in Indiana
  • Have a physical operation in Indiana
  • Are publicly or privately held organization
  • Have been in business for at least one year, at the program registration deadline



There are three different ways companies can participate.

FIRST – You can be an individual organization with a FEIN, or Federal Employer Identification Number.

SECOND – You can be the parent or holding company of more than one organization, with one FEIN for all subsidiaries. The parent or holding company must register with all employees employed by it.

THIRD – You can be a subsidiary of a parent or holding company but register separately if each subsidiary has a different FEIN. If you have more than one facility, branch, factory, office, or store, you must include all locations that operate under your FEIN in the survey.


When you participate, all of your current full- and part-time permanent employees working in Indiana should be included. This means everyone…from the line-level employees all the way up to the executives and from the on-site workers to remote employees. If they physically work in Indiana or report to a supervisor in Indiana, include them.
